THE fact of CREATIONWatch
I was rather hoping to be pos repped for it
Well I did know, but I got a bit confused. I'm surrounding by enough books to last me a lifetime without getting dictionaries involved!
Trying to make me jealous of your uni?
Once you start, you become a dictionary freak like me. Then you move onto foreign dictionaries (I found myself looking at a coptic/greek dictionary the other day) and then onto thesauri. Thank goodness the UL has a room FULL of dictionaries. It's heaven....
Jeez, I know what you mean, I haven't used my 'Pocket Fowler's Modern English Use' yet, despite having it months. I don't seem to put Roget's down when writing an essay though.
I had to get a "rare book" once and it had to sit on a padded book cradle and everyfink...
what was it?
You have to "order" and collect SO many books though because they have so many. You have to fill in a card and wait 1/2 an hour whilst someone goes into the bowels of the library and finds it!
What's wrong with getting a new copy?
The sheer pleasure...
You have very odd tastes in my opinion!
